Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Kiener (1838) and G.B. Sowerby II (1844) recorded this Recent species under the name "Scalaria decussata Lamarck, 1804", originally established for a fossil species from the Eocene of the Paris Basin. The names Scalaria arabica and Amaea sowerbyi were both established for Sowerby's "Scalaria decussata" (and are thus objective synonyms), and the name Cirsotrema kieneri was established for Kiener's "Scalaria decussata" (and is thus a subjective synonym). [details]
